btw: I would rewrite this function as:

     print_test_description ()
     {
         echo
         echo $this_test: "Testing ${test_description}"

         print_test_description () { :; }         
     }

If I wanted to reduce XTRACE noise (even further), even further:

     _print_test_description ()
     {
         echo
         echo $this_test: "Testing ${test_description}"

         print_test_description=
     }
     print_test_description=_print_test_description

(and then use $print_test_description in "calls")

or even

     alias print_test_description='
       echo
       echo echo $this_test: "Testing ${test_description}"
       alias print_test_description='

(just tested this latest works)

Note on aliases: bash namual states:

 For almost every purpose, aliases are superseded by shell functions.

One notable exception is XTRACE noise reduction. In our case best 
candidate would be prerequisite work -- but SMOP..
